Wonder if wee will ever get another driver update on the Z series?

Although they are fine right now I have to admit.

Doubt it with their attention focussed on the gaming RGB striplights card.

I dunno, I've been having an issue in a couple games where itl just decide to sound like its underwater and static.
I'd rather enjoy a driver update right now, even if it's just for shits n giggles.

Could be game related though? As in an issue moreso on the games side?

Sounds exactly like some of the issues I have with my Zx. Sometimes it'll just switch speakers around or off. Sometimes while watching something in 2.0 it'll go crackly and get worse over time. Been like this for a long time now and forum research shows that it's a common set of issues.

Yeah it could be, it does it in Ghost Recon Wildlands so relatively new, and also in Rise of the Tomb Raider so a game that's been around and is stable.
Once it goes though Ill usually quit to windows, then ill have silence, then itl starting going bananas in windows with some crazy distortion. A restart normally fixes it.

I haven't had it switch speakers, but I use headphones so probably less than it can screw up in those instances when it goes nuts.

I have contemplated going for Creatives new AE-5 soundcard, if only for the new set of drivers etc. But It wouldn't be much of an 'upgrade' most likely, unless the amp is more powerful and sounds better than the ZXR.
I like the laser mic and the volume control on the ZXR to, it would probably work on the AE-5 though.
